I had a great time at my local knitting guild -- the Heritage Corridor Knitting Guild -- last night. Fun women, a little knitting and a lot of needle felting. . .
I'm happy with my first project. It's a Sophie that I knit up a little while ago, embellished with some whimsical flowers (hopefully you can tell that they are flowers, even through they are rather abstract :) Deanna Donovan from kneatles.com taught the workshop and it was a lot of fun and easier than I thought. I'm afraid no felted bag will be safe now!
Speaking of the knitting guild, officer elections are next month. While I am pretty swamped with everything else I do, I'm thinking of becoming an officer (if they will have me!) Right Now Marianne (of Perfect Touch Yarns, my *very* local yarn shop) is doing the work of all the officers. If she keeps one office, I take one and Cathy takes the other, it may be doable. (I need you to help me though Cathy!!) We shall see what next month's meeting holds.
I reached into the suitcase and pulled out this lovely hank of yarn. It's Harmony from Brooks Farm. This stuff is really lovely -- 55% kid mohair, 22.5% fine wool & 22.5% silk. I have no idea what colorway it is, but I'm in love! More tales from the suitcase in upcoming posts. If I don't document it all here, I'll forget where I got everything from!
